December 2010

I'll be honest, December kind of sucked. Or at least I thought December sucked, but that was before January. The combination of physical injury/pain with stress from work and holidays made for a rough beginning of the month. What happened at the end of the month (which I'm not going to get into) made all that pale in comparison.

For the first, second, and third time in over two years I missed a day taking photos. I'm trying to get my act together. I don't quite have the same joy for this project I once did. I'd like to regain that.


December didn't exactly go as I'd hoped. My knee problems made running difficult and I basically had to stop until my knee gets better.

Cycling made my knee hurt even worse than running. I ended the year with roughly half the miles I would have hoped.

I began walking a little more later in the month, as it wasn't as hard on my knee as either running or cycling. Working from home, having no disposable income, and knowing practically nobody in area, my daily trips taking Will to and from daycare are often the only time I leave the house. Spending some time outside walking the 3.6 miles round trip seems to be preventing craziness from setting in. On the other hand, how would I know?
